Winemaker Notes

One of the finest red wines of France. When young the color is deep purple, like black cherries, with aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry. It is a full wine with delicate tannins, 100% destemmed, complex. With age this rich nectar takes on scents of leather, truffles, undergrowth and leaf-mold. The Syrah vines, with an average age of 35 years, have an exceptional position on the hill, facing the south. Not a single ray of sunshine misses this slope.

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
A wine that sells for around $100 a value? Yes, when it has the pedigree of La Chapelle and the intensity of this particular wine. The best wine to come from Jaboulet since the awe-inspiring 1990. And yes, in these days of newly released $250+ first-growth Bordeaux, a value.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1997 Hermitage La Chapelle has begun to completely close down, which is surprising in view of how sweet, seductive, and precocious this vintage can be. However, the color seems to get deeper with exposure to air (the wine was far more drinkable after 24 hours of aeration than it was upon opening). The moderately intense bouquet exhibits plenty of ripe blackberry and cherry fruit, in addition to spicy, mineral characteristics.
JS 92
James Suckling
Pungent, decadent aromas of aged beef, foie gras and dark fruits follow through to a full body with dried-dark-fruit, prune and raisin flavors and hints of pepper. So rich and opulent now with character of earth, dust and hot pebbles in the sun on the finish that holds together this very ripe-styled La Chapelle.

Paul Jaboulet Aine, France
Paul Jaboulet Aine Winery Video

Paul Jaboulet Aîné has been a trend-setting grower and shipper in the Rhône since 1834. The Jaboulet company was founded by Antoine Jaboulet, and his twin sons, Paul and Henri continued to expand the family business. The elder son ("aîné" in French), Paul, established the company in its present form and gave it his own name. Since then, the company has been run by successive generations of sons from that side of the Jaboulet family.

The House of Paul Jaboulet Aîné is one of the Rhône’s most recognizable wineries. The reputation of Jaboulet wines rests on the quality of the well-situated and well-tended vineyards, on low yields, careful vinification, and diligent aging in oak casks. The Jaboulet family prefers carefully integrated oak aging, in which the influence of wood is never allowed to become excessive. Since this is an important point, they have their own cooper who makes and maintains their stock of barrels.

Jaboulet wines symbolize robustness and elegance, essential qualities of great wines. Their crown jewel is their Hermitage "La Chapelle" which Clive Coates states "is one of the great red wines of the world." Thomas Matthews of Wine Spectator has singled out Jaboulet as a producer which "offers reliable wines across the entire range of appellations (in the northern and southern Rhône)."
